I have been having an amazing week and so has Coastal Couture boutique. The amazing floral maxi I slayed in earlier this week is now SOLD OUT!! No worries, they have some more amazing things in stock including this LBD I'm sporting in this post. I live for a nice statement piece and this dress is a statement in its own right.
Boasting exaggerated sleeves and an above the knee hemline, this dress can go from resort/vacation-chic to Opera House Haute Couture! As you can see from the pics below I have styled it as I just described (lol). The deets on my accessories are captioned on the pics. Coastal Couture is still building their site, but that won't stop you from getting their hot pieces. Head over to their Facebook page and if you see anything you like, just call them up and place your order. They also ship at no additional cost!
As much as I love styling my own clothes, I am surprisingly having more fun collaborating and styling for up-and- coming companies. Maybe it's the pressure of representing a specific brand that pulls out all the creative stops for me.This one is especially dear to my heart as this will be my first collaboration with a boutique in my home state of North Carolina (Yayyyyy!).Located a few minutes from Wilmington ,in Leland, Coastal Couture Boutique is a becoming a local hot spot for high-end style at an affordable price. As much as I love my state, we have never been known as a hub for fashion, which I'm guessing is why local people always ask where I am originally from lol. Tinea Capri, owner and New York native, made the move to the 'First in Flight' and has made it her mission to bring a new fashion perspective to the Carolinas. The amazing look below is one of her best sellers.
I am what you consider short (5'2'') so, I shy away from maxi pieces. This flower maxi, however, is the exception! I don't know what to say about this dress that can't be seen from the amazing visuals. This full length floral maxi gown has a tie waist and is composed of a pastel chiffon. It is also lined which makes it a perfect seasonal transition piece. The billowy sleeves are cuffed and adorned with gold buttons for sartorial emphasis. I wanted to play up the floral romanticism of the piece so I went full on garden goddess. I made a quick floral crown headband (will make a post ..stay tunes!) and it was perfection. My earrings are from Romwe.com ($3.80, old) and gave a nice boho, yet high fashion finish ;which I added my gold cuff (courtesy of mom) and my lace up sandals from Shoedazzle ($17,old) for the perfect gold finishes. I'm obsessed with my new fave red lip from Coloured Raine, so my pout is painted in Cherry Blossom.
Back again with the amazing Incantare Boutique! This time around I am serving up inspiration for date night. It's summer time , it's hot and you need a look to match. Incantare is debuting their latest in fierce fashion and this is no different. This white dress is a sexy form fitted piece with a one shoulder detail.It features a back zipper and asymmetric front opening. I added the gold plated (GoJane, old) belt to highlight my waist, but it can definitely be worn without one as is it cinched in at the waist. Composed of a stretchy materials, this dress hugs you in all the right places. I am far from curvy , but you could never tell in this summer stunner.I am so humbled and honored to say go check out the 'LaNatria Body Con' dress (only $30) available here http://www.incantareboutique.com/#!product-page/c6np/7687b503-b15a-c498-0ad1-2fcac6e23b1f
